Because I can never be too serious for too long, I must share a funny poem. Today’s poem includes a clever pun. In “Wing Nuts: Screwy Haiku” poets Paul B. Janeczko and J. Patrick Lewis have a blast playing with words in short little packages. The illustrations of Tricia Tusa are also fun companion pieces to the word play.
Each page in the book has 2-4 poems on each spread, and the illustrations begin to overlap. So, I share today’s funny haiku (which always gives me a giggle) with the picture as best as I could capture it (though it also has a bit of another poem entangled with it. Isn’t that the best way to do it? Tangling poems; playing with words.
